RALEIGH, N.C. -- Elton Brand played some tight end for his high school football team in Peekskill, N.Y. His mother tried to get him into the martial arts. He insists, however, that "What if?" is not among the games he has tried.Brand is the 6-foot-8, 260-pound sophomore at the center of Duke's second-ranked basketball team. The Blue Devils, who are home tomorrow against Maryland, are among the favorites to win the NCAA basketball title, which begs the question: Does Brand think they would be defending the crown had he not missed 15 games last season with a broken right foot?

Nevertheless, coach-GM Gregg Popovich set about finding help up front for Tim Duncan, 30, letting methodical Nazr Mohammed and Rasho Nesterovic go, and bringing in springy Francisco Elson and athletic Jackie Butler.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Blue Monday?It's anything but.You -- and CBS -- couldn't have asked for a better finish to the college basketball season than tonight's NCAA tournament championship pairing between No. 1 Duke and No. 3 Connecticut. They are the only teams that have been atop the rankings this season, two photogenic programs that recruit nationally and push the pace.Sure, defending champion Kentucky would have dredged up an unpleasant memory at Tropicana Field and the revenge motive for the Blue Devils.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Meet Shane Battier, Duke's "defensive stopper."At 6 feet 8 and a broad-shouldered, sculpted 220 pounds, he is the rare player who specializes both in blocking shots and taking charges. (His 33 charges this season set a Duke record; his 53 blocked shots are the ninth best in Duke history.)A sophomore religion major from Birmingham, Mich., Battier is enthused by his studies of China's Shaolin monks -- or as he put it, "I'm intrigued by their whole dogma.""How do you spell that order of monks?"
